Show 23 – Walk On 1

 

In this show, Jeff Stockton, and

John-Luke Edwards begin a three episode journey into the darkness. More specifically how do we cope with the constant storm of shadows that seem relentless in their invasion into life. Every day we are beset with images and stories of terrorism, cruelty, war, abuse, and sadness; how do we walk on?

In this first episode they are in conversation with Quynn Red Mountain as they ask her how she works with such shadows as a practitioner and as a personal journey. Quynn Red Mountain is a shamanic practitioner, spiritual mentor and ceremonial artist.  She is the ordained Animist Minister for Earth Web Media’s “Web of Life Animist Church” .  She is also the founder of “The Institute for the Shamanic Arts” (the spiritual education branch of EWM), and Producer of the “Earth Tribe Network” ( EWM’s Animist Outreach Media).
